If we are not mobbing, you’ll find us pairing and making sure what we ship is always in line with our sprint goals who themselves are in line with the company's yearly objective. We pride ourselves in always aiming to deliver outcome-based value to our customers and measuring this with clear metric, although we are always learning and getting better at the later.
